The Patriots have scored a touchdown on every Tom Brady-led drive this season.

LeGarrette Blount walked in from two yards out on the Patriots’ first series Sunday to make it 7-0 over the Browns.

Brady, who’s making his 2016 debut after serving a four-game suspension (perhaps you heard about it), hit Julian Edelman with his first pass and had two completions to Rob Gronkowski. Brady went 4-of-5 for 65 yards on the drive.

The Browns went three and out to start the game. The Patriots went 80 yards in eight plays but had a scare when tight end Martellus Bennett had to be helped off the field near the goal line, just before Blount’s touchdown.

A 34-yard catch-and-run by Gronkowski was the biggest play of the opening drive.
